Keyline plowing/ ripping is a cost-effective way to increase infiltration of stormwater runoff, break up hardpans from previous land-use practices and guide water back out towards ridgelines where the landscape is driest.
The deck and the campsites and the sail shades all looked great and when we had corrections to be made you were on top of it quickly. Nice friendly team also.
Mike and his team transformed my rocky landscape into a beautiful food forest, with fruit and nut trees, perennials and lovely raised beds. I have been planting the beds each season and enjoying the bounty! It was made easier by having them install a watering system on a timer. They also installed a chicken run with electric fencing along the top to keep out predators.
My house took on water when torrential rains hit. Mike and his team solved all my drainage problems using environmentally sensitive techniques that cost thousands less than conventional approaches and he came in under budget!!! I can not recommend these guys any higher. Wonderful!
A miraculous transformation” would be an accurate way to describe the beautiful impact that Michael/ Justin/ Symbiosis has had on our land here in Wimberley. Within one year of planting, we now have wildflowers that are literally 5 feet tall. We have grass where a donkey paddock used to be, we have mitigated our drainage issues, we have garden boxes sprouting veggies, we have a lovely trellis built, now covered in vines. The team is knowledgeable, respectful of our land, professional, and pleasant to work with. We will continue to use Symbiosis, as well as recommend them highly to anyone who asks.
I’ve worked with Mike Wolfert & his excellent team several times over the years, both for my private home and for apartment properties I oversee through my work. I couldn’t recommend Symbiosis more highly: Their team knows Central Texas plants and does a great job balancing classic permaculture approaches with a property owner’s needs. In our most recent project, they took out trees, built beds, added fence, filled in off-alley parking spots built an outdoor living area with built-in furniture, and created a grassy space for our toddler. I can’t think of another company that could meet all those different types of needs. Kudos to Symbiosis and thanks!
Michael and team,
It was such a pleasure working with you all to create a food forest in my backyard. Thank you for helping to bring my dream to life.
